BR Remote To Introduce Proteân XMi Camera Head At IBC

News Image
BR Remote Ltd is to introduce its latest Proteân XMi camera head at the 2018 IBC Show in Amsterdam, 13-18 September.

The Proteân XMi is a totally silent, remote controlled head for programmable cameras in studios, live events and sports broadcast. Its key feature is its smooth, precise, silent movement, which is achieved by using direct drive motors to achieve a silent, zero-backlash performance.

BR Remote places the 'intelligence' which stores camera positions, moves and timings, within the camera head, which simplifies the operator's control of the cameras.

The camera head can be driven with a joystick, wheels or a pan bar system. BR Remote has used its own unique 'predictive motion smoothing' algorithm which makes positional control from wheels or PBS as smooth as it is with a joystick.

BR Remote has also added a host of other features including new control protocols and built-in profile moves.

The Proteân head can be extended in both height and width to suit many lens and camera configurations and has options for IP or fibre control and fibre output.

"Our Proteân head, introduced last IBC, proved to be incredibly popular, and its orders have already amounted to over £1 million. They are being installed in a group of studios across Europe," said BR Remote's MD Nick Percy. "They are so quiet they can be placed by the orchestra in a concert and will not be heard. The new model combines zoom and focus with the built-in motion control, which enables a simple route to studio automation, with full Free-D metadata including for the lens."

BR Remote will be at IBC in Hall 12, stand 12F67.
